Would Recomened It For A Elderly Man Or Woman — There is no leg room in the front seats, its a over priced luxury car that lacks horsepower and torque. The I drive system screen is deep inside of the front panel and is really hard to see. The steering wheel blcks the speedomeeter when your driving

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handles nicely, its reliable, heated seats, heating steering wheel, and a sunroof

Cons: Has no horsepower or torque, the car is overpriced, the I drive system is too awkward, the feont seats are to small, the car has a awkward shape in the back,

Many things went wrong with the Engine and electronics, Very Powerful Sedan, and too delicate while no one can figure how to repair, even at dealership. Market Value drops fast and no resale value...Rubber frames for windows & wind shield dry out & crack.
